I compared comment history between the v/science thread (https://voat.co/v/science/comments/766372) and the v/protectvoat thread (https://voat.co/v/ProtectVoat/comments/764716) by grepping the usernames from each thread.
10.8% of the v/science threads also posted in the protectvoat thread. Therefore 89.2% of the users in v/science were absolutely verifiable non-brigade comments (ignoring the fact that voatprotect users can also be interested in science). Two of the posters in the voatprotect thread were v/science moderators btw.
This is pretty overwhelming majority of posters who were absolutely not brigading. It's time for the moderators to apologize to the v/science community for ridiculous accusations and apologize for the even more ridiculous censorship rules.
